Silvertip Gondola Project
Canmore, AB

Silvertip Gondola Project Overview

Stone Creek is proposing to construct and operate a gondola along with a day lodge, trail networks, viewing platforms, suspension bridge and associated utility services infrastructure as part of the Silvertip Integrated Village Resort.

The Gondola Project proposes a Gondola connecting the base area of Silvertip to an upper terminal on the summit ridge of Mount Lady MacDonald, via a mid-station integrated with the Silvertip Resort Village. The Gondola Project spans lands administered by three jurisdictions: Bow Valley Wildland Provincial Park, Public Land, and land within the Town of Canmore.

The project includes three station areas

Enclosed Cabins

Enclosed cabins will enable barrier-free access for all. In addition, the Silvertip Gondola will provide an alternate form of transport for connecting staff from employee housing to Silvertip Resort Village. Existing trails on Mount Lady Macdonald will be retained in their current alignment to accommodate day hiking activities.


The Silvertip Gondola will span approximately 3km in length and will rise 1km in height. Approximately 27 towers, of which 12-15 towers will be located on Provincial land, will be required for the construction and operation of the gondola. The towers will require a concrete base and will range from 8m-17m in height.


The Silvertip Gondola will have a development area of approximately 12.6ha (10.5ha located on Public Lands) and will be straddle two municipal jurisdictions (Town of Canmore and Municipal District of Bighorn).

The Silvertip Gondola will provide an accessible tourism opportunity to all skill levels and user groups.
